What was Leatherface up to as a teenager? We’ll soon find out!
We’ve been waiting for quite some time to hear an update on Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo’s Leatherface, a prequel to the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre that has been finished for a while now. When can we expect to see it? All has been so silent on that front that we were beginning to wonder if the day would ever come. Tonight, however, brings good news!
Producer Christa Campbell revealed on Twitter that Leatherface is coming in October!

Jessica Madsen plays one of four inmates (Sam Coleman, Sam Strike, James Bloor) who escape from a mental hospital. One of them becomes the title character and iconic slasher. The quartet kidnap a young nurse (played by Vanessa Grasse) and take her on a road trip from hell. Along the way, they are pursued by an equally deranged lawman (Stephen Dorff) out for revenge.
The Conjuring‘s Lili Taylor plays Mother Sawyer.
